    :rotfl: :rotfl: Would love too :thumbsup2

    Ive enjoyed planning this trip, i just want this trip to be perfect cus i know we wont be going back for a long time after due to money, and we are planning for baby number 2 next year.
    We would not even be going on this trip if it wasnt for hubby who worked very hard at work to pay for the holiday, using vouchers that he gets as part of his bonus for getting customers to upgrade their insurance policies.
    But he has changed his position at work now, and is no longer on the phones so will not be getting vouchers anymore.
    So if we wanted to go back to DLP in the future we would need to do some strict serious saving!
    So because we dont know when we will go back we realllllly want to make the most of this trip and enjoy it to the max

    Lovely pre-trip plan there Sara.

    I notice you are intending watching the main parade almost every day - maybe you could go to the DLH at 4pm instead one of those days? You might even be lucky enough to go to the DLH first, then see most of the parade anyway from the train station end of Main St USA when you're done in the DLH?
